Karam: Indigenous festival gets a spirited celebration

'Karam Puja', a major festival of the Orao -- an indigenous community living in the northern districts of Bangladesh. Young indigenous girls observed a dawn to dusk fast on the first day of the festival. In the evening they prepared special dishes for guests and kinfolk and served them after offering the food to their deities. Later they fetched branches of the Karam tree from the nearest point in a colourful procession, while boys and girls sang and danced to the beats of drums. At sunset they built an altar, where they planted the branches of the Karam tree. During the ritual, young indigenous men and women danced around the altar. The priest began the puja by reciting verses explaining the significance of the festival.  According to researchers, the Karam festival is a way of the indigenous people expressing their affinity with nature. They also pray for happy conjugal lives through the puja. The festival ended the next day with offering branches of the Karam tree to the Tangon river. The festival starts on the last day of Bhadra and ends on the first day of Ashwin, according to the Bengali calendar.

কেন পুজা টার নাম কর্মা পুজা হল? কিংবা কর্মা গাছটাই বা কি? এর সোশ্যাল ভ্যালু টা কি? এই পুজার ইতিহাস, বর্তমান, ভবিষ্যৎ সম্পর্কে আলোকপাত করলে পোস্ট টি সমৃদ্ধ হবে বলে মনে করি।

We can learn a lot about Why Deep Learning Works by studying the properties of the layer weight matrices of pre-trained neural networks. And, hopefully, by doing this, we can get some insight into what a well trained DNN looks like–even without peaking at the training data.
